the strange and wondrous journey of Mildred Reid's soft palateI just came back from a walk, the route of which took me past a dental lab. The lab's parking lot is composed of crushed shell and limestone. And apparently hundreds of plaster of paris dental molds. Molars and incisors. Soft palates and gums. Recycled fossils returning to aggregate under tires. All labeled with the names of their corresponding patients. Hmm.

@ Anika's requestThese are pictures of the dental molds filling potholes along the side of Georgette Street. As an aside, I love all female names that end with "ette." Note the presence of a latex glove in the bottom photo. As an aside, who doesn't love finding the used latex glove in a pile of medical waste?
